Here’s a poem I wrote on June 7, 1995 about someone losing a friend. I never shared this poem with anyone, but I wrote this after my classmates lost one of their friends.
Goodbye, My Friend
“How can I go on without you?” I ask
Why has God given me this impossible task?
I try not to
But I have to cry
Why my friend, did you have to die?
I miss you so much
You haven’t been gone very long
I feel like singing every sad song
Everything reminds me of you
I am so blue
People try to comfort me
And be my friend
But I’d rather have you
My friend to the end
But the end has come for us
It doesn’t help to fight
I want to know will we ever meet again?
I wish you were with me, my friend
Tell me how to ease the pain
Tell me how to get out the rain
I try to think of the good times we had
Every time I try to say goodbye to you
I feel so sad
But it is time
I have to let you go
Always remember I love you so
Goodbye, my friend.
